Review of Meade Lux Lewis: 1939-1941

Tracks 1-3: Duets with Albert Ammons.
Track 4-8: Piano solos.
Track 9: with the J.C. Higginbotham Quintet.
Tracks 10-15: Piano solos.
Tracks 16-17: Harpsichord solos.

This is my first compilation I own by this label and now that I'm finding out some are worth a heck of a lot, even used, I'll be getting more. I got this for $8 used and it's worth three times that. I saw this going for almost $300 new! Music wise this is my first taste of "Lux". The quality is pretty good, except for tracks 4-8 because they were on a small label (Solo Art), but overall I was impressed by this mans playing. The track "Honky Tonk Train Blues" is what he's known for and it's no wonder. I thought it was two people playing it was so good! Hearing a jazz man play harpsichord is interesting too as not many people were using it at the time. Johnny Guarnieri is one of them.
